    Geeze Caleb, it's a very simple image but it could be an ad for like the Gap or something.
    Very nice....

    I love riding passenger with him. Such a great car.

    @kevinparis:

    I like the first shot you posted, although I kind of wish there was something drawing the focus to the car (motion blur, DOF, ect.)

    Good composition though :)

    Never understood why fiat never sold this in the US... came out about the same time as the Miata - though its fwd as opposed to the Miatas rwd - still it is a lot prettier... and even nicer with the roof down... Think it was about 18,000 euro new... mine was second hand...previous owner Hertz at Eurodisney...in my mind i bought Mickey Mouses car!!!

    has served me well over 9 years... apart from self inflicted bashes and a unfortunate incident with a polish plumbers vans it has always worked.

    your s2000 would eat me for lunch

    I like the shot but I think beyond the S2000 the background is distracting.

    A great car the S2000 (sadly discontinued) it had the highest owner satisfaction in the BBC Top gear annual reliability rating 3 years running.

    For a convertible the body torsional rigidity was one of the highest and without a weight penalty.

    Even Jeremy Clarkson thought highly of it.

    It actually looks best in Silver it accentuates the front styling of the car the best black is good too.
